Match Report

Visits to Shawfield prior to then had scarcely provided good reading for United fans — but things improved that afternoon in a result sense anyway.The Tannadice side were then bidding to clinch for themselves a place in Europe for the following season and therefore the two points were vital ones to gain. Mind you, the fact was that although the rewards were forthcoming at the end of the day.

United actually took advantage of the only two real chances offered them throughout the 90 minutes. Paul Sturrock hammered United into a 32nd minute lead but the same player was actually lying flat out when Jim McLean's men added to that lead seven minutes later. An off-the-ball incident laid low the Tannadice winger but play sped on for Traynor and Gray to combine for Derek Addison to put the finishing touch. Clyde's interval substitutes Harvey and Ferris proved the sense of the move in 58 minutes when they combined to bring their side back into contention with a goal from the latter.
